       ----- 3 MONTH NEWSLETTER NOW ONLY VIA EMAIL-----

PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE
   Turning 65 is a milestone and a good reason for people to celebrate. It’s no less so for an organization. This year is the 65th anniversary of the Adventurer’s Club of Honolulu! It all stated back in 1954 with a group of adventurous men (no women admitted, but Ladies Nights were held quarterly). Patterned after The Adventurers Club in New York City, and those in Chicago, Los Angeles and Copenhagen, the organizational meeting was on April 16, 1954 and the first program (a travelogue on Fiji) was April 30th in the Queen’s Surf penthouse. The Club was officially chartered on October 29th, 1954 with 72 charter members. The first Ladies Night program was by Dr. Howard Liljestrand on “A Tiger Hunt in India with the Maharaja of Indore” and included a film Howard took. To mark our Club’s anniversary, this same presentation will be related by Howard’s son, Bob, as our June 20th program, also including some movies Howard took! Don’t miss it! 
    We’ll mark our ‘official’ anniversary later in the year in October. Come help us celebrate it! Here’s to our 65th!
   Aloha, Lowell Angell, President

        CLUB NEWS
     WHAT’S IN A NAME?
Unlike what Shakespeare said, it’s who we are. We’re The Adventurers’ Club OF HONOLULU. The local distinction has been in place since our founding, as there have been other Adventurers’ Clubs around the world, including New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Michigan, Copenhagen, Penang, Pretoria and Singapore! So when you make out your check at our dinners, proudly make it out to “The Adventurers’ Club of Honolulu.” Mahalo!

Our first three programs of 2019 are by our own Club members! Don’t miss them! Aloha,  
Lowell Angell, President

Exploring the Pacific, Above and Below Water 
       by members   Judy and Ted Simon
Judy and Ted Simon have been traveling and snorkeling the Pacific for nearly 50 years, ever since they moved to Hawaii. Their most recent trips took them to the islands of Palau and Yap, Micronesia, where they explored the underwater world of fish and coral, in addition to the above-water natural and cultural resources.  In Yap, it was the 50th  Anniversary of Yap Day, an annual festival that celebrates the various island cultures of Micronesia.  Their photos and videos have captured Palau’s world famous Jellyfish Lake and Rock Islands, the athletic Yap Bamboo Stick Dance and the magnificent manta rays. If you have never snorkeled, come see what you have missed. If you do snorkel, but don’t take photos, come see why you might want to start.
